If you are an avid royal watcher like me, the news of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle existing as senior members of the British Royal family, should not come as a surprise.
In a response to the statement, Her majesty , Queen Elizabeth also seems shocked by this bombshell announcement. I am not sure why though. After all, she removed their photographs from her waiting room and her televised Christmas message . This was very petty and beneath royal etiquette.
My question is, “Did the “senior members” of the royal family really believe that Harry and Meghan would put up with this alienation and snobbery?” It has been a difficult road for these two since their wedding. In the final analysis, they chose their happiness and their love. Good for them. What is so wrong with that? I would have done the same.
Their recent announcement via Sussex Royal Instagram, has sent social media in a frenzy. Some people are happy, others are mad, calling them selfish. I don’t see what the fuss is all about. They made it quite clear that they want to earn their own money and therefore they do not wish to be supported by the British tax payers. That is impressive. Other members of the royal family should follow this example. Why should the population of a country have to pay for you to be royal? If you are royal, you should be rich enough to take care of yourself, like Jay Z and Beyoncé and David and Victoria Beckham.
What baffles me is Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are being persecuted for loving each other, (Meghan for being black) and the Palace is trying to cover up the allegations surrounding Prince Andrew’s “sketchy past relationships with under aged girls. This is very sad. Honestly, I feel it is time for every member of the royal family to Brexit. Why do we need a monarchy again? Slavery was abolished before all of us were born. It’s time to move on and focus on what really matters in life.
Do you all think the rest of the royal family should start paying their own bills and they all need to “Brexit”?
